In recent years, heuristics for adaptive solutions to load frequency control (LFC) in power systems have been proposed that include adapting the LFC targets or adapting the participation factor for the resources. However, stability guarantees for these adaptation ideas are missing, especially in the presence of switching/evolving topologies of the power system. In today's smart grids, switching topologies often arise from reconfiguration and resilience against faults or from switching among different control areas in order to dampen oscillations and face cyber attacks. This work proposes a novel LFC framework in which adaptation and switching topologies are combined in a provably stable way.
